An introduction to modern structural chemical science covering: states of matter: gas, liquid, solid, solutions; atomic structure; chemical bonding: stereochemistry, isomerism, conformational analysis; methods of structural determination: spectroscopy (electronic absorption, infrared, nuclear magnetic resonance), mass spectrometry; colloids.
CHEM 111 Chemistry: Molecular Architecture is an introduction to university chemistry with an emphasis on relating bulk properties to molecular architecture and determining molecular structure. It consists of five lecture modules and a laboratory course.
